There are quite a few of us who eschew the ubiquitous Gravograph engraving machines & software in favour of the vastly superior offerings from U-Marq.

Namely, the wonderful, intuitive & easy to use vistool software, and the fab machines that run on it.

This topic has been established as a kind of mini-forum for those of us lucky to use said machines & software.
Whether it's a technical query or problem, or to highlight a feature you've just discovered, or if you find something really useful hidden in the software that you think is worth mentioning, this is the place to do it.

Over to you, rlj...

So come on then, club members, who's got what?

I've got a 2009 MY Universal 300 running Universal software version 8.
Prior to this I had a universal from about 1999 running (the newly released) v5 of what was then called visual toolbox. Paid £6k for the machine second hand, another grand for the software & it paid for itself in under a year. \:D/ \:D/

Taught me there & then not to be afraid to invest in the right tools for the job!

I also have a Uni300 running Vistool8, bought not long after Steve had his. prior to this I had a Roland EGX300 running Vistool 5 which I upgraded to Vstool6. I ran that for 10 years alongside a panto I still have the Roland.

I see there's a new version of the Universal now, the 350.

Lots of little tweaks, and still (I think) at the same price!
